Gohmert Vs. McCain: GOP Civil War In One Minute

When a Texas Republican accuses an Arizona Republican of supporting Al Qaeda, it's not hard to understand why the GOP is crumbling

Sixty seconds explains it all. Rep. Louis Gohmert appeared at Friday's Values Voters Conference to stand tall for the Republican government shutdown. In that one minute, he managed to accuse Senator John McCain of sympathizing with Al Qaeda.

Gohmert can't handle the truth, which Senator Grumpy delivered to Fox News Friday morning when he flatly told them defunding the Affordable Care Act is not achievable. His response was predictably insane.

"The current administration does not recognize our enemies from our friends," Gohmert asserted. He then went on to describe McCain as "some senator from Arizona, a guy that liked Qaddafi before he wanted to bomb him, a guy who liked Mubarak before he wanted him out, a guy who's been to Syria and supported al Qaeda and rebels..."

Like Right Wing Watch, who first posted this clip, I'm curious to watch the explosion that will happen when Gohmert says that to John McCain's face.
